    This falls was the site of a tragic dam failure in 1977 that killed almost 40 people in the college and town below. The dam was made to power a small hydroelectric power plant which still stands near the falls today.

    This photo was originally taken on 4x5 large format Velvia 50. Im rediscovering it almost 5 years later. The scene was quite contrasty, with the snow on the mountain, and, unfortunately, the film was generally underexposed. I was able to rescue the image by bringing up the shadows and converting to monochrome. It is still quite dark, however; I think it works to set a moody, dramatic, scene.

    A little darker and it would be a great night scene for a Hollywood movie. How about Hitchcock's North by Northwest?

    I like the falls. Nice wide angle.

    Well done.

    One of my favorites from you, just on a formal basis--lots of interesting symmetries to explore (not to mention some great gradations, especially in at the "middle distance.")

    At any rate, if you want a combination of Higher Ed and waterfalls, Cornell would be hard to beat--and of course, Taughannock Falls is just across the lake (though even you might have trouble finding a wide enough lens.)

    Thanks Alan, Steven, Jon, and Ben!

    I was lucky with the clouds. The overcast day broke finally, with some puffy clouds making the sun hazy but directional raking across the scene beautifully. I took a photo about 30 minutes before which is just dull and boring due to the light. People were all over the place taking selfies, but I waited until it just about cleared...you can still see the blur of one person on the far left middle, and there's a backpack in the scene, but in b&w they blend in well enough.

    I think the polarizer really helped too. I need to use that more in these conditions...

    PS: I really wanted the trees bracketing the falls, which came out well here. Inside, after shooting this, I was browsing a a collection of old line drawings and paintings from probably 50-100 years ago, all of which prominently displayed trees bracketing the falls. Seems I was in good company!

    Bryan your black and white waterfall is stunning. The fact that the fall's are centered in the image and yet it works so perfectly. Such delicately defined tonalities - would love to see this print in person! Question: by what means did you process for semi-stand? Trays? Tank? Just curious!
